The Congress of the People has
called on government to act regarding the South African Human Rights Commission
coming under attack in KwaZulu-Natal.
This as the commission is
investigating His Majesty King Goodwill Zwelitini’s role in inciting the recent
xenophobic attacks in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng.
Allegedly since announcing its
plan to investigate the king the commission has been receiving threatening
calls and letters.
COPE Spokesperson Dennis Bloem
says these thugs must know that it will be in the best interest of King
Zwelithini and a country as a whole that the commission investigates these
allegations so that we know the truth.
“It’s only the truth that will set the King
free. We want to condemn these threats and we call upon the minister of police
and state security to hunt for these thugs and arrest them.” Bloem added.
